Dodging Fort Dodge

The decisions by Gen. Wesley Clark and Senator Joe Lieberman (D-CT) to skip the Iowa caucuses next year are good news for Rep. Richard Gephardt and bad news for General Wesley Clark and Senator Joe Lieberman. Lieberman's notion that he can't bounce back from losing Iowa and New Hampshire by doing well in Arizona is particularly deranged. New Hampshire now becomes the acid test of the Clark campaign. If he doesn't win there, he's finished.
